Academy of Music (circa 1905)

Calloway Johnson Moore & West

Over the last several years, we have performed the structural engineering and design for the current additions and renovations being done to allow for the reopening of this facility. These projects have included the structural design to restore original window openings, the design to reinforce the structure for wind loads required by current codes, the evaluation of the existing wood roof trusses and the necessary design of modifications to strengthen the trusses. We have also completed all structural design for renovations and additions to not only the original Academy Building, but also two adjoining facilities to become part of the cultural complex. This includes the warehouse theatre that converted a tobacco warehouse from the mid-1800’s into offices and classrooms. The original wood framing and masonry walls were used. The second phase is the design of a new Fly Tower after the old tower was destroyed in a storm.
